Easter Wishes

Happy Easter!  I hope you have a chance to spend time with family, friends, and those who mean the most to you {smile}.  We are heading out the door, to go on an Easter Egg Hunt with 4 of our grandchildren.  It's pretty exciting!  and then we will be sitting down to Easter dinner.  Yum!
But, before I get on the road, I wanted to share with you an Easter card I made.  Ok, I actually made 6.  They are all packaged and in the car waiting.  (a lot of family will be at this years Easter Egg Hunt.)

I used a beautifully constructed sketch by Retro Sketches.  A lot of potential!  You can keep it clean and simple, or really add layers.  This sketch would be easy to do a shabby chic or vintage style card, too!  The possibilities are endless!

I did move the top layer over a bit.  So, if this doesn't qualify for the challenge, I totally understand.

I had a difficult time trying to find some suitable pattern paper for easter, and just couldn't find one I really liked.  So, I used digital pattern paper.  All these pattern papers are digital.  Even the bunny ticket.  The only stamping I did was the sentiment.  I added a button and bow with cream twine.  And to give the card a little visual interest I added a trio of half faux pearls.

Thank you for stopping by.  Hope you get a chance to play along with the sketch challenge over @ Retro Sketches.
